What can I say. The location is fabulous, the views unbelievable, the rooms lovely and the service is incredible. Any hiccups (we didn't get turn down service one night) are instantly addressed- and a bottle of Prosecco was waiting in our room the next day with management's apologies. We were in the Villa Flora, as we were traveling with our... More

Beautiful hotel, beautiful room, beautiful location and view, beautiful gardens, and attentive service. The breakfast buffet was the most extensive I've enjoyed. I could go on and on, but you get the picture!

We were a group with 10 rooms and no request was too much to ask - service was among the best I have ever received. We had a very nice room with a living area on the entry level with bath and a loft with bedroom and bath upstairs. All nicely furnished. Bed a bit hard for me, but otherwise... More

We only stayed one night at the Timeo, but the hotel is absolutely fantastic - beautiful parc and wonderful historic house. The service during breakfast was excellent - very friendly and everyone paid a lot of attention to the details. A big compliment to the maitre for such a good service team! We will come back!

Imagine being perched upon a hillside overlooking the sea and nestled beneath a snow capped mountain. Beneath you lay beautiful gardens with a mix of trees and sweet chirping birds. This hotel is a quiet getaway, away from students and tourists coming off the Greco-Roman theatre. Although the service doorman is a bit constipated with his attitude, it seems just... More

It was the most efficiently run and welcoming hotel that we have had the pleasure to stay in. The quality controller, was most impressive, always noticing little things. The breakfast in the room that my husband ordered came very quickly and was beautifully presented. The swimming pool attendant was helpful and attentive. The bed and pillows were sumptuous and we...

Thanks a lot to feel so welcome with my family and my "very active" 14 month old "Figlio" in Siciia! The service was perfect, but never... More

The room I had was extraordinary! View of the beach, mount etna and the hotel grounds. Service was amazing. Probably the best experience I had in a hotel. Would definitely stay here again.
